Prime Time features Cystic Fibrosis

Prime Time on RTE television (12th April) featured the treatment of  Cystic Fibrosis in Ireland today with a very personal report by Orla Tinsley, who has first hand experience of living with CF in the Ireland of 2011.

Only five people with cystic fibrosis have received double lung transplants in the State since the Lung Transplant Unit opened in The Mater Hospital Dublin in 2005. Since then, unknown numbers of people with CF have died while waiting for new lungs.
